    "The dominance of syntropy over entropy is the dominance of the metaphysical over the physical
    and guarantees an eternal resolution of all conflicts between the physical and the metaphysical
    in favour of the metaphysical. Mind will always win over energy. Omniconsiderate love will
    always win out over ruthless selfishness, but the score is only cosmically accounted and the meager,
    momentarily- visible-and- tunable considerations cannot so inform the inherently limited
    comprehension of the local players. The players may easily be deluded into misassuming
    that momentary victories won by treachery or physical force are of lasting importance.
    The invisible design provides for the only-slowly-gestating self-education of humanity
    from naked,helpless ignorance at birth, through individual trial-and-error coping with
    necessities, to omnigraduation into functioning omnireliable, omniloving, intellectual-integrity-governing
    individuals of an omnifaithfully operative and truthful society. The cosmic design often
    employs precession to guide the ignorant players into inadvertently producing the evolutionary
    necessary regenerative integrity functions, while the ignorant are consciously preoccupied
    only in vain and selfishly expedient ends".

    “Group hypnotism, mob leadership, call it what you will, was never more easy than in this day of syndicated press and national hookup. And democracy may find this new world an even more unhealthy place in which to survive than it has been for the last one hundred years.” ~ George Estabrooks (that mkultra dude)

    Knowledge will forever govern ignorance; and a people who mean to be their own governors must arm themselves with the power which knowledge gives.

    “Begin at once to live, and count each separate day as a separate life.”

    “It is not the man who has too little, but the man who craves more, that is poor. ”

    “He suffers more than necessary, who suffers before it is necessary.”

    Ignorance is the cause of fear.”

    “We should every night call ourselves to an account;
    What infirmity have I mastered today?
    What passions opposed? What temptation resisted? What virtue acquired? Our vices will abort of themselves if they be brought every day to the shrift.”
    Seneca

    Muhammad is the Messenger of Allah ; and those with him are forceful against the disbelievers, merciful among themselves. You see them bowing and prostrating [in prayer], seeking bounty from Allah and [His] pleasure. Their mark is on their faces from the trace of prostration. That is their description in the Torah. And their description in the Gospel is as a plant which produces its offshoots and strengthens them so they grow firm and stand upon their stalks, delighting the sowers - so that Allah may enrage by them the disbelievers. Allah has promised those who believe and do righteous deeds among them forgiveness and a great reward.

    Surah Al-Fath 48:29
